Eight accused burglars among 16 indicted in Hancock County

By Bill Trotter, BDN Staff

ELLSWORTH, Maine — Eight people accused of committing various burglaries were indicted last week by a Hancock County grand jury.

A total of 16 people were indicted in Hancock County on Aug. 7.

Daniel J. Lindsey of Ellsworth and Peter L. Nadeau of Otis, both 35 years old, each were indicted on a Class B charge of burglary and a Class C charge of theft. They are accused of breaking into a house on Boggy Brook Road in Ellsworth on Oct. 14 and stealing numerous personal items.

Among the items the duo allegedly stole are jewelry, coins, dishes, electronics and DVDs, according to Hancock County Assistant District Attorney Mary Kellett, the prosecutor in the case. Lt. Harold Page of the Ellsworth Police Department said the value of the items, which were not recovered, adds up to nearly $2,000.

Class B felony crimes in Maine are punishable by up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000. A conviction on a Class C felony is punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000.

Isreal D. Hall, 35, of Southwest Harbor, and Natalie Gilio, 31, of Bangor, each were indicted on one burglary charge and one theft charge, both felonies. According to Kellett, they are accused of breaking into a storage unit in Tremont on Oct. 8, 2013, and stealing someone’s personal items they found inside.

Hall has been indicted many times in recent years on various charges, including in April and February of this year, in October 2012 and in October 2011.

Carl S. Oldham, 48, of Belfast, was indicted on three felony counts — one each of burglary, theft and operating a motor vehicle after revocation. The charges stem from his arrest in Ellsworth on March 16 of this year.

A Southwest Harbor woman with multiple drug arrests also was indicted last week. Melissa B. Gott, 31, was indicted on two counts of unlawful possession of drugs and on a charge of violating conditions of release. One of the drug possession charges is a Class C felony, and the other is a misdemeanor.

Stephen F. Batson, 32, Otis, failure to report.

Beckton S. Brownlow, 18, Blue Hill, burglary, theft.
